When you’ve bought and furnished your lovely home, the last thing you’re probably concerned about is pests.

It’s one of those problems that you never think will happen to you...until it does. Termites, spiders, ants, rodents, bed bugsroaches, mosquitoes...all of them are icky. And unwelcome.

The thought of having pests in the home makes us all collectively go “YUCK!!” But we seldom think about the real dangers that each pest presents to you, your family, and your home. Allergies are probably the last thing you should be worried about when dealing with pests.

Pests can get in your food. They can tear up your furniture. They can cause a slew of structural damage, from chewing wires and starting fires, ruining the insulation of your home, and even eating away at the foundation itself. This can leave you with thousands of dollars of repair work, if pests are allowed to fester in your home.

They can also introduce a slew of diseases to you and your family. Mosquitoes can carry a variety of blood-borne pathogens, while rodents carry infectious proteins in their saliva, urine, and feces. Food-borne illness is a serious concern if pests come into contact with any of your food sources in the home. Spider bites can be poisonous and even fatal if not treated appropriately. Roaches carry a variety of bacteria from trash and other decomposed matter. And that’s just scratching the surface.

Having your home inspected regularly is a mandatory part of being a responsible homeowner. Whether you are buying, selling, or renting a home, hiring an exterminator will save you time, money, and stress. It’s an investment into your property, your family, and your health—one that you can’t afford to skip out on.
